A second trailer has now landed for director Jeff Wadlow’s sequel, Kick-Ass 2. The new trailer focuses much of the attention on Chloe Grace Moretz’ Hit Girl, and is a hell of a lot of fun because of it.
We see her struggling to fit in and lead a normal life at school, and we hilariously see her beat up a fellow student because he won’t hit her. Naturally, there is plenty of footage of the rest of the gang too (although The Mother Fucker is completely absent), and ocne again Jim Carrey steals the show as Colonel Stars and Stripes.
Kick-Ass 2 is directed by Jeff Wadlow and written by Wadlow, Mark Millar and John S. Romita Jr. Matthew Vaughn returns to produce. The cast see’s Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Aaron Taylor-Johnson return, and they will be joined by Jim Carrey, Lyndsy Fonseca, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut, Yancy Butler, Clark Duke and Lindy Booth.
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother Fucker—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.
Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother Fucker, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
UPDATE: A new poster has also been released today which finally gives Jim Carrey’s Colonel Stars and Stripes his chance to shine, check it out next!
